2016 Rosť of Syrah
When Bruce first identified a section of Hilltop Ranch Vineyard as being particularly well suited to making rosť, we were becoming aware of a re-energized interest in these wines produced in a dry style with serious winemaking techniques.
A dry rose is a prized complement to food and company, particularly well suited for warm summer days outside as an apertif or to accompany a meal.
The 2016 Rosť of Syrah is composed of Syrah fruit from Hilltop Ranch Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills AVA, on an adjoining property to Lafond Vineyard.
A terrific wine with ample weight to enjoy with all but the heartiest of foods. Delightfully refreshing with a simple lunch of cheese, cured meats, olives and bread on a warm day.
Winemaker's Comments: Destemming with overnight skin contact prior to pressing gives us a saturated Ruby color, the aroma and flavor of Boysenberry and the spiciness found in cool climate Santa Rita Hills Syrah.
